The Hammerhead Titanium Damascus Meteorite Dial - 10 Pieces Limited Edition

Zelos is proud to produce the very FIRST watch case made from Titanium damascus. The ZX-7 was our very first Ti-damascus model and the Hammerhead is the second to be launched. This amazing material is made from two different titanium alloys which are forged together under tremendous heat and pressure. Once this material is forged and machined to our highest tolerances, it is heated to approximately 400°C to bring out the brilliant colors. This layered effect and colors vary slightly across all watch cases.

Ti-Damascus is extremely expensive due to the amount of work that goes into forging it. Machining the material also involves high tool wear compared to regular titanium due to the alternating alloys and varying hardness.

Our Design Philosophy

The Hammerhead hearkens to the glory days of dive watches. The distinctive cushion shaped case, once common among many dive watches, has been given an angular facelift. A high double domed crystal tops off the vintage influences for the Hammerhead. 

Case Materials

bronze dive watch

Marine Bronze, a 'living' metal which patinas according to your use. This makes each watch unique to you.

Ceramics, or Zirconium Oxide to be specific, was chosen for the bezel insert due to its legendary hardness of ~1500 Vickers.

Special Edition Options

Meteorite is a metal approximately 4.5 billion years old with a striking design unlike any other material. Each and every meteorite dial has a different pattern, otherwise known as the Widmanstatten Patterns. This is formed over millions of years of slow cooling, and cannot be reproduced synthetically. We use material from the Muonionalusta meteorite which is found in Sweden and landed over a million years ago.

Dial Details

The dial of the Hammerhead was designed to be both functional yet unique. It is made from 2 layers, with the outer minute layer fully coated in BGW9 lume. The top layer is circular brushed for a lovely texture which is emphasized in sunlight. Hour markers have been custom designed to be as tall as possible to increase the depth and visual interest of the dial.
